Printing on acrylic is an exciting new medium on which photographers can print their photos. Unlike what might first come to mind, photos on acrylic at AcrylicPix aren’t just a standard printed photo laminated or incased in acrylic sheets. Rather, the photo is printed directly onto large acrylic sheets (think plexiglass) via a flatbed printer.I would describe the end result as like high def T.V but in a photo. The result is stunning
3 Reasons Why Acrylic is Better Than Canvas
#1-It’s Unique compared to Canvas
Many photographers are now using print to canvas services to print their photographs onto canvas for display in a gallery or to sell to a client. However, this canvas medium has seen high popularity – and with popularity comes blandness. Your photo art is unique and needs to stand out; so why use a canvas that is common to most other photographer work?
Acrylic prints is a great way to stand out and offers something different. You’ll be hard pressed to find another photographer displaying their photos printed on acrylic. The difference between acrylic and canvas will make any photo pop out in comparison.
#2- It’s more vibrant
Although canvas has a nice texture to it, the colours somewhat wash out when absorbed and dispersed into the material. The result is a comparitively bland photo.
The colours of acrylic prints are a breath of fresh air. While the sheets are not textured like canvas, the colors adhere precisely to the hard surface, and with the reflective nature of the acrylic sheet, provide a depth unlike anything canvas can provide. The colours are vibrant, crisp and precise. The contrast is also more pronounced than canvas. The overall effect is stunning clarity that actually does justice to your photos.
#3- It’s a modern look that will fit any decor.

(see our video section to learn more about this option)
Sintra is a 1/8 plastic material that is glued to the back of the acrylic. It serves many purposes. It gives the 1/8 and 3/16th acrylic more body as well as protects the acrylic from careless handling. It also guarantees that the hanging option will not be seen through the acrylic, although the black ink in back does that sintra if foolproof.
If you don’t want square corners we can have them rounded.

Acrylic is a new way of digital printing. It’s like embedding your image directly on to glass. The result is an ultra clear, extra glossy picture quality. It’s like looking at an HDTV tv.
How do I add my photo?
Simply follow the checkout process and in the options section, you will be asked to provide your personal picture.
How is printing different from face mounting?
Face mounting consists of printing your image on paper, then embedding that paper on to a glass panel. With our process, your image is printed directly on to the glass for a better and more vibrant finish product.
How good is the quality?
By printing directly on to acrylic, there’s no risk of peeling, ripping or crumpling. The result is a far superior finish product that will last longer, resist scratches as well as eliminate discoloration.
